Rico, 14. VESSELS. 1. Clearance of Vessels—Importation of Opium not Included in
Manifest.-A collector of customs has no right to refuse clearance of a vessel, used as a common carrier, because of the nonpayment of a fine imposed under section 2809 of the Revised Statutes, for bringing into the United States merchandise not included in the manifest, unless the master or owner of the vessel was consenting to the illegal act or privy thereto. 364.
VESSELS—Continued. 2. Same-Enforcing Penalty.—Where the vessel is not used as a
common carrier, the Government has, by virtue of section 3088 of the Revised Statutes, a lien on the vessel for the penalty thus incurred by the master, and may enforce that lien by libel and seizure; but where the vessel is used as a common carrier, and the owner or master thereof is not a consenting party to the illegal act, or privy thereto, the only remedy appears to be an
action against the master. Ib. 3. A foreign tugboat clearing from Vancouver, British Columbia,
with logs in tow, some of which are destined to Anacortes, Wash., and the remainder to Bellingham, Wash., may lawfully be permitted, after arrival at Anacortes and delivery there of the logs consigned to that port, to proceed to Bellingham with the remain
ing logs in tow for delivery there. 572. 4. Government Contract—Partial Payment.—The general rule would
seem to be well recorgnized that, in the absence of statutory prohibition, partial payments may be made on account of work done in the construction of vessels for the Navy if (1) title to the vessel shall have passed to the United States at the time of such payments, or (2) a lien shall have been created by law or contract upon the unfinished vessel to the amount of such partial
payments. 46. 5. Registry and Enrollment.-A vessel belonging to a domestic cor
poration is entitled to registry or enrollment, even though some
stock of the company be owned by aliens. 188. 6. Reissued Articles of Ship’s Equipage Chargeable to Annual Ap
propriation for Equipment of Vessels.”—Under the acts of June 25, 1910, and March 4, 1911 (26 Stat. 792, 1279), creating the naval supply account, articles of equipage of ships, which in prior fiscal years had been purchased and paid for under the appropriation “Equipment of vessels” and which had been turned into store from ships going out of commission, should be again charged against the annual appropriation for “Equipment of vessels” when they are reissued to the vessels upon their going
into commission. 344. 7. Same.-Under said act of March 4, 1911, the Secretary of the Navy
is authorized, whenever the interests of the Naval Establishment require it, to direct that “surveyed material taken from repairs made to ships or plant at navy yards and stations” and "stores turned in from ships” going out of commission should not be charged to the naval supply account, the word “materials” as used throughout the acts in question being intended to in
clude articles forming part of a ship's equipage. Ib. 8. Steamer “John B. Ketcham No. 2"Removal from West Nee
bish Channel.—The claim of the Reid Wrecking Co. against the Government for services in removing the steamer John B. Ketcham No. 2 from the West Neebish Channel should be paid
and that company should not be required, as a condition precedent to the payment of its claim, to bring the vessel within the jurisdiction of the United States since said vessel has been
sold under appropriate judicial proceedings. 276. 9. Same. The statute under which this claim arises makes no
provision for the payment of interest, therefore none can be
paid. Ib. 10. Steamship "Europa” Carrying Passengers into the Port of New
York Without Certificate of Inspection.—The steamship Europa, a private vessel of Italian nationality, which was engaged in carrying passengers upon a regularly established line between the ports of the United States and European ports, sailed from the port of New York with a certificate of inspection but arrived back at New York more than 30 days after the expiration of such certificate, did not thereby violate any of the provisions of title 52, Revised Statutes, for the reason that foreign vessels are subject to inspection only when carrying passengers from
the United States. 19. 11. Transportation of Passengers into Foreign Waters and Back to
Port of Departure.—The transportation of passengers by foreign vessels from a port in the United States through domestic and foreign waters, sometimes touching at a foreign port, and returning them to the port of departure, is not in violation of section 8 of the act of June 19, 1886 (24 Stat. 81), as amended by section 2
of the act of February 17, 1898 (30 Stat. 248). 318. CONSTRUCTION OF NAVAL VESSELS. See EIGHT-HOUR LAW,

NATURALIZATION. See Porto Rico, 8. WORDS AND PHRASES. 1. "Ammunition.”—The practical meaning of the word “ammuni
tion,” as used in the proviso in the fortification act of June 6, 1912, under the heading of “Armament of fortifications,” is much for the determination of the departments for which it is especially intended, and as this proviso is mainly for the guidance of the War and Navy Departments and those purchasing material for them, it may well be taken that the generally accepted meaning of the word in these departments was the
one intended. 488. 2. "Arms and munitions of war.”—The words "arms or munitions of
war, ” within the meaning of the joint resolution of March 14, 1912, authorizing the President by proclamation to prohibit the export of arms or munitions of war to any American country in which conditions of domestic violence are found to exist, embrace weapons used for the destruction of life, together with ammunition and equipment useful in connection with them, and explosives and other equipment of a military character, or
articles used for the construction of such equipment. 375. 3. “Establishments.”—The provisions of the act of June 30, 1906
(34 Stat. 674), in relation to the inspection of “establishments,” cover all “establishments” where meat food products are prepared, wherever the meat which goes into them may have
come from. 227. 4. “Formerly in free Public Library.”—The provision in the legis
lative, executive, and judicial appropriation act of August 23, 1912, for an assistant in the division for the blind in the Library of Congress, creates a particular position but does not designate the particular person who is to fill it; the phrase “formerly in the free Public Library,” is merely descriptive of the character of the duties of the position created. 532.
WORDS AND PHRASES-Continued. 5. "Herein.”—The word “herein ” when employed in an act of
Congress ordinarily and unless the context makes necessary a
different construction means "in this act.” 35. 6. "Materials.”—Under act of March 4, 1911 (26 Stat. 792, 1279),
the Secretary of the Navy is authorized, whenever the interests of the Naval Establishment require it, to direct that “surveyed material taken from repairs made to ships or plant at navy yards and stations" and "stores turned in from ships” going out of commission should not be charged to the naval supply account, the word “materials” as used throughout the acts in question being intended to include articles forming part of a
ship's equipage. 344. 7. “Officers of the United States.”—Deputy clerks of the district
courts of the United States are "officers of the United States" within the meaning of the provision of the urgent deficiency appropriation act of August 5, 1909 (36 Stat. 118, 125), which limits the rate of premium on official bonds of officers and
employees of the United States. 593. 8. “Organized under National and State laws.”—A bank is “organ
ized under National or State laws,” within the meaning of section 9 of the postal saving depositories act of June 25, 1910 (36 Stat. 816), when it is incorporated, or clothed with the essential attributes of a corporation by virtue of legislative
sanction. 368. 9. "Route.”—The word "route, as used in section 1 of the act of
March 3, 1891 (26 Stat. 830), means the course or way to be trav
eled in going from one place to another. 389. 10. “Shall be Expended for the Purchase of Structural Steel, Ship
Plates, Armor, Armament, or Machinery.”—The provision of the naval appropriation act of March 4, 1911 (36 Stat. 1289), that no part of the money therein appropriated "shall be expended for the purchase of structural steel, ship plates, armor, armament, or machinery” from any combination or monopoly refers only
to purchases made directly by the Navy Department. 44. 11. "Such Materials or Articles as may Usually be Bought in Open
Market.”—The word “supplies” and the phrase "such materials or articles as may usually be bought in open market” are practically synonymous and cover things which are had in store or stock. Whether a particular article or material falls within this exception to the eight-hour provision is generally a matter of
administration. 12. “Supplies.”—The word “supplies" and the phrase "such materi
als or articles as may usually be bought in open market” are practically synonymous and cover things which are had in store or stock. Whether a particular article or material falls within this exception to the eight-hour provision is generally a matter
of administration. 534. 89760°-VOL 29_13 42
